     International Dual Bachelor’s Degrees
     Two years at Sciences Po + two years at the partner university
     Sciences Po offers dual Bachelor’s degrees with nine of the world’s leading universities, allowing students to study as fully-
     integrated members of two distinct academic cultures. Students are recruited from all over the world and benefit from a
     unique international experience combining the strengths and academic specialties of both institutions.

     The first two years of all dual Bachelor’s programmes take place on one of Sciences Po’s campuses. In years 3 and 4 at the
     partner university, students pursue a major offered by the host institution. Upon successful completion of the two curricula,
     students graduate with two Bachelor’s degrees, offering exceptional access to prestigious graduate studies or to entry into
     the job market.
